I'm trying to install Linux Test Project (LTP) on Debian 6.0.2, kernel Compilation and installation went fine and without errors, but when I try to run basic tests

$ ./runltp

I get following error:

FATAL: LTP not installed correctly
INFO:  Follow directions in INSTALL!

After inspecting runltp script I realised that I'm missing all bin directories in LTP (./bin, ./testcases/bin, ...). I followed all instructions in INSTALL and installed all dependencies. How can I fix that?

So after following all of the instructions in INSTALL, you still get the LTP not installed correctly error? – Bryan Garza Mar 20 '12 at 22:30
@BryanGarza Exactly! – Peter Krejci Mar 21 '12 at 10:10
Just to be clear, you are aware that LTP is packaged for Debian, right? – Faheem Mitha May 26 '12 at 3:35
